Cover blurb:
THE HAVOC FILES

“There’s always death on the rock when the Beast’s about."

Students have gathered on Fang Rock to celebrate the opening of the ‘most haunted lighthouse of the British Isles’, but they get more than they bargained for when the ghosts of long-dead men return, accompanied by a falling star.

Anne Travers is called to her family solicitors, who have in their possession a letter from Archibald Goff, the paranormal investigator who once visited Fang Rock back in the 1820s, and along with it a piece of alien technology.

What connects a shooting star in 1969, mysterious deaths in 1902, and the Beast that roamed Fang Rock in 1823? Lethbridge-Stewart and Anne Travers are about to discover the answer first hand...

Fully authorised by Terrance Dicks, this is the sequel to his classic 1977 Doctor Who serial ‘Horror of Fang Rock’. Featuring original characters created by Mervyn Haisman & Henry Lincoln.

Afterword by Ralph Watson

Cover blurb:
“There’s always death on the the rock when the Beast’s about."

Fang Rock has always had a bad reputation. Since 1955 the lighthouse has been out of commission, shut down because of fire that gutted the entire tower. But now, finally updated and fully renovated, the island and lighthouse is once again about to be brought back into service.

Students have gathered on Fang Rock to celebrate the opening of the ‘most haunted lighthouse of the British Isles’, but they get more than they bargained for when the ghosts of long-dead men return, accompanied by a falling star.

Colonel Lethbridge-Stewart is brought in to investigate what he believes to be signs of alien involvement. But it is not only Lethbridge-Stewart who has an interest in Fang Rock. Anne Travers is called to her family solicitors, who have in their possession a letter from Archibald Goff, the paranormal investigator who once visited Fang Rock back in the 1820s, and along with it a piece of alien technology.

What connects a shooting star, ghosts of men killed in 1902 and the beast that roamed Fang Rock in 1823? Lethbridge-Stewart and Anne Travers are about to discover the answer first-hand...

With a foreword by Louise Jameson, who played Leela, the Doctor’s companion from 1976-1978.


The inside cover flaps read as follows:

Lethbridge-Stewart is a series of novels set after the 1968 Doctor Who serial The Web of Fear.

It is primarily centered around the the characters of Alistair Lethbridge-Stewart, who was at the time of The Web of Fear a colonel in the Scots Guards, and Anne Travers (also introduced in The Web of Fear), and is set during the four-year gap between that serial and The Invasion, which saw Lethbridge-Stewart reunited with the Doctor and promoted to brigadier and head of the UK branch of UNIT. The character continued in Doctor Who as a semi-regular from 1970 to 1975, and made many return appearances throughout Doctor Who’s history. He is probably the most well-known character next to the Doctor, and a bona fide legend of the Doctor Who universe.
